lessons in diversity

I always learn a lot during my trips to California. I usually spend a day or two with my grandparents, who usually regale me with tales of how Mexicans are taking over the world.

This visit, my grandma taught me about different ethnicities:

• "Latina women like to have babies."

• "Asians don't mind living in small apartments above stores."

• "Armenians are cutthroat businessmen."

And then I told her I was converting to Islam.
